“Happy birthday, Clo.” Jackson leaned in for a tender kiss. As he pulled away, he brushed aside a loose strand of hair on my face.

“Thanks for such a special birthday, babe.” I beamed at him, feeling like the luckiest person in the world. I had the most amazing husband and best friend and we were expecting our first child in a few months.

“Well don’t get use to it.” A boyish grin appeared on his handsome face.

“What do you mean by that?” I smirked, knowing very well that he was about to say some smartass comment.

“Well it’s going to be your last birthday where it’s just the two of us. Once our daughter’s born, you’ll be competing with another gorgeous woman for my attention.” He gave a wink.

I slap his chest playfully and pretended to pout. “Jerk,” I teased.

He chuckled and took a big bite from the slice of birthday cake in front of him. “Don’t worry, babe,” he said through his mouthful of cake, “I’ve got plenty of love and spoiling to go around for the both of my girls.”

I couldn’t help but break into a fit of laughter. “You’re such a messy eater,” I teased as I reached over and wiped the cake icing from the corner of his mouth with my thumb.

Without saying a thing, he grabbed a hold of my hands and sucked the icing slowly off my thumb as he stared intensely into my eyes. The mood in the room instantly changed from one of playful teasing to one of sexual anticipation. My breath hitched as he gently circled his tongue around my thumb, instantly causing a pool of pleasure to grow at the pit of my stomach.

When he finally released my finger from his mouth, he said in a husky voice, “Let me show you how much of a messy eater I can be.” He shot me a meaningful look full of promise and need.

Our lips met in a frenzy and before I knew it, he had lifted me up on top of the kitchen island and his tongue was working its way up my inner thigh.

I gasped when he began to suck me playfully through the thin fabric of my laced panties. I felt his fingers push the fabric aside to reveal my throbbing wetness to him.

“Baby, you’re so wet for me,” he groaned as he inhaled deeply.

But just as he was about to enter me with his tongue, I felt a wave of nausea hit me.

“Jax,” I began.

“—I know, baby … you’re so fucking wet,” he mumbled as he eagerly lapped me up.

“No … I mean, I need to you stop,” I said between pants, feeling guilty that I was about to ruin the foreplay.

He suddenly stopped and looked up at me with concern. “What’s wrong?”

“Morning sickness.” I frowned as he helped me off the kitchen island. I ran to the sink and began to dry heave.

“I’m so sorry, Clo,” he said as he pulled my hair back as I leaned over the sink. I could hear the disappointment and guilt in his voice.

“It’s not your fault, Jax. I’m sorry I just killed the mood.”

“Don’t think that way,” he reassured.

“Can you grab me some ginger ale from the fridge?”

“Sure.” He walked over to the fridge and looked inside. “Oh, I don’t see it.”

“Oh, I think I finished the last of it this morning,” I said as I just remembered. “Do you mind going to the store to get some?” I flashed him an innocent smile.

“Of course, baby. Anything for you and our baby.”

He grabbed the keys and was out the door.

After a few minutes, I heard the front door open and close.

That was fast, I thought with a smile.

“Daddy’s home,” a deep voice boomed from the front of the house.

My body stiffened instantly as the familiar voice I thought I’d never hear again shook me to my core.

How could this be? A chill ran down my back as a flood of memories I’d locked away years ago came rushing back with vengeance.

I heard him walked into the kitchen at that very moment. I looked up and as soon as our eyes met, I knew my worst nightmare had just came true. He was back.

**Promises, Love & Baby & Contracted Love Release Dates**

For the last month or so I’ve been having a hard time writing and finishing Contracted Love. Something wasn’t clicking for me and I wasn’t sure what it was. But a few weeks ago, I realized that my heart and thoughts were still with Chloe and Jackson from the Promises series and not with Contracted Love. That was when I asked you all if you wanted a fourth book in the series. And as soon as I started outlining the story for Promises, Love & Baby, everything clicked and the words just flowed naturally!

After a lot of thought, I knew I needed to be honest with myself and turn to the book that was really calling out to me. So I’ve decided to push back the release of Contracted Love to later this year (date TBD) and push up Promises, Love & Baby from later this year to August 25. So what does this mean?

1) I will be canceling the preorder for Contracted Love on Amazon and pushing back the release date to later this year on the other sites (I couldn’t push back the release date on Amazon for more than 30 days).
2) I had put up Promises, Love & Baby on preorder a few days ago and last night, I moved up the release date to August 25 (3 months before I had initially scheduled it for).

The preorder links to Promises, Love & Baby are here:
Amazon US:
Amazon UK:
B&N: coming soon

I know the push back of Contracted Love’s release may be disappointing and I feel awful about that. But at the end of the day, I don’t want to release anything I’m not happy with, and I rather my readers be upset with me about a delay than a story that’s not as great as it can be! I hope you can all understand.
